Creating flat seams is the challenge on long seam closing. Manually sewing closing seams is a long training process where the fullness often occurs where we do not need it. In order to counteract the problem, we offer sewing machines that can perform the sewing process safely and automatically.
1281 | Sewing unit with pre-laying table for long closing seams
Flat seams - we accept the challenge!
Your benefits at a glance
Flexibility by use of double-chainstitch or 4- / 5-thread safety seams alternatively
Automatic fullness distribution - Perfect fit
Alternatively double-chainstitch seams or safety seams with 4 or 5 threads can be sewn. Therefore a change of the sewing equipment is required.
Touch screen with graphic display for easy operation and quick access to modifiable parameters
Automatic fullness distribution
As standard, the sewing units are equipped with automatic fullness distribution by pneumatically controlled top feed and bottom feed. The sewing units can optionally be equipped with step motors for the top and bottom feed control. This allows the programmed recall of different multiple fullness values within a seam.
Step motor-controlled fullness distribution (option)
Touch screen with graphic display for easy operation and quick access to modifiable parameters. Data is backed up via USB flash drive.
